    i had not intended to take the tomatoes as a picture. they had been delivered with the dew still on them and i had cut one tomato as per front and had a eureka moment
grabbed the camera took several and then continued to chop and slice for a salad and home made tomatoe soup
hence the "eaten" in the PP
I have now sourced a wicker basket and white cloth as suggested by JadeO

    The technical qualities of the image surpass the limitations of composition and the injection of a little plastic. This would have moved much higher but still good for a top 10 finish.

    It's been too long since I tasted tomatoes right out of the garden. That fresh taste never seems to survive the grocery store route. Appetising presentation but the two slices look out of place - pushed over to accommodate the basket. Nice to see you have the difficult reds under control exposure-wise.

    Fresh tomatoes just smell delicious and your photo captures the freshness wonderfully - probably because it's not too staged. The post processing info is brilliant.

    I can almost taste them! What a treat. Well composed and well captured - simple but effective.

    Beautiful red tomatoes but I feel the composition could have been improved especially to get rid of the blue on the left.

    SteveBee thinking back the wooden board would have been better
JadeO the box does let it down

    I like the eating step of post processing. I think the composition needs some work. You might have taken the tomatoes out of the basket for one thing and arranged the sliced one more artfully.

    Nice use of lighting. Substitute a more textured box (maybe a wooden one or a woven basket with white cloth napkin) and you'd really have this nailed. As it is, using what you have here, you've got this about perfect.
